Get free from fear of death

“We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.” Desmond Tutu, South African cleric

Are you afraid to die? If you are, you are not alone. Even many Christians, whose very faith core is the hope of heaven, face such feelings.

Making a Grand Exit: Biblical Answers to Our Fear of Dying, actually sprang from one such Christian’s experience. Watching this church friend battling both cancer and a terror of impending death inspired me to explore what the Bible actually says about dying, death and God’s forever place, heaven.

What I found — both in God’s Word and through a near-death experience of my own — is now available in e-book form.

Making a Grand Exit specifically answers the questions that some Christians are reluctant to talk about, such as: Why do people die? Is it OK for Christians to be afraid to die? What will happen when I die? What will happen to those I leave behind? and What is heaven really like? Answers are drawn solely from scripture.

Join me in hearing what God has to say and taking Him at His Word. The scriptures truly speak of joy, love and forever life — and a God who never intended for His people to face death in fear.

Making a Grand Exit also keeps the door open to readers who are investigating spirituality — respecting those of other faiths or no faith while speaking from an openly Christian viewpoint.

    1. It wasn’t always fun to write — a lot of time spent thinking about death — but contrasting fears with actual scripture was very encouraging. God really is able, even in dark times. Blessings, Tebatjo!

      1. I can imagine pondering about death. This is what Stoics do. Such as those now-dead like Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, etc, they were practicing what is called “memento mori” — a conscious rumination on death to bring soundness to life and living. Fearing not death begins life. But it is good to have Solid foundation to which death is not feared, the Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. I downloaded the book and have begun reading it. I didn’t know about your ordeal with encephalitis. Yikes! That must have been shortly after Lukachukai.
    I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about death and dying since my dad died in August. We spent a lot of time talking about it– he and I.
    I read an interesting book called Being Mortal which helped me process a lot of things. This is going to be helpful too. Thank you, dear friend.

    1. 🙂 Blessings back atcha, roomie. Lukachukai. That would be where I got the virus that led to the encephalitis… Haven’t talked about it much outside the family. It was a tough time and it’s a tough subject to think or write about. It’s something I’ve really had to live. It felt like the right time to share what I’ve learned. Hope it helps!!
